Latino workers thrive

Latinos are the fastest-growing segment of the American workforce, and the strength of the American economy is increasingly linked to the strength of the Latino workforce.

UnidosUS helps corporate partners diversify their workforce by investing in our training programs that supply employers with trained candidates.

Training programs teach students in-demand sector skills that build upon their bicultural/bilingual background and customer service skills. In turn, graduates are able to launch gainful careers, up-skill to higher positions within the sector, and help strengthen their communities.


CREATING CAREER PATHWAYS IN THE FINANCIAL SERVICES SECTOR

In order to better reach unbanked and underbanked Latino communities, financial institutions benefit from employing staff that is part of and can connect with their target communities.

Bilingual Latinos with the right training are uniquely positioned to succeed in this sector because they have the linguistic and cultural competency to more effectively serve Latino clients.

The Latinos in Finance Initiative provides resources for Affiliates in Chicago, Illinois; Denver, Colorado; Grand Rapids, Michigan; Lawrence, Massachusetts; Los Angeles, California; Madison, Wisconsin; Phoenix, Arizona; Seattle, Washington; and the District of Columbia to implement demand-driven training programs within the financial services sector in partnership with key employers.

ADVANCING OPPORTUNITIES FOR RETAIL WORKERS

Jobs in the customer service sector often provide an entry point for individuals looking to enter the workforce; however, few provide the opportunity for upward growth and mobility.

UnidosUS supports organizations and programs that help individuals start on a career path in the customer service sector, or that provide upskilling opportunities to help incumbent workers move up the career and economic ladder.

The Advancing Retail Workers Initiative supports Affiliates in Chicago, Illinois; Cleveland, Ohio; El Paso, Texas; and Hollywood, Florida to train under-or-unemployed individuals and help them launch a career or advance to better jobs within the customer service and retail sectors.
